"Broken Cisterns"
by Attalus
Lyrics:

I need to repent to you again
I've been fashioning idols with my hands
I'm laying them down now on the fire

I've been playing the harlot in my heart
I've been keeping my Baal in the deepest parts
But I'm burning them out now on the pyre

So receive my sacrifice
And revive my heart, O Christ
Cause I'm sick of drinking
Pleasures that can never satisfy

Jesus I confess
That the world's a wilderness
And all of my sins are broken cisterns

I'm thirsty for that spring
That can wash this sinner clean
So wash me again inside your river

I've been making your house a den of thieves
I've been worshipping as your spirit grieves
I say as I sin more: "Let Grace Abound"

Well today is the day I'm coming clean
Brokenness is my offering
So stand me again, Lord, on solid ground

Receive my sacrifice
Revive my heart, O Christ
Cause I'm sick of drinking
Pleasures that can never satisfy

Transform my mind, I pray
Restore my song of praise
Cause I'm sick of seeking
Treasures that will only fade away

Create in me a clean heart
And renew by Your Spirit, a right spirit
Tear my high places apart
I hear your word and I fear it, O God, I fear it
"They Don't Want It"
by Beacon Light
Lyrics:

I got that food for your mind
You Hungry?
And I ain't talking middle eastern countries
But if I was
Then I ran on this track with zeal
I rack my brain 'cause the truth is real

But they don't want to hear it
Drums mission from their ears
So percussion got 'em struggling
Like they caught up in a snare
They don't even care
So they're caught up like the air
Dating every kind of woman
I call it foreign affairs
Dead man walking
People still doing the Bernie?
Losing all their battles
Black-eyed like Fergie
You they're covered in their gold
Getting scarred like Xerxes
The lies they believe in been working

But I've been working too
I'm 'bout to bring them truth
So they will all be changed by God
Who made them all
And if they want Him they will call
But if they don't then they will all
Be pained they missed out on His call
He can save us before Him
We all stand and fall

I got that food for your mind
But they don't want it
I got the cure for the blind
But they don't want it
Do you want it?
Do you want it?
Do you want it?
They don't want it.

(ooh)
Cataclysmic they mad and twisted
They shattered their pictures
Like savages ravaging reaping havoc
(ooh)
Pattern vicious the tattered Christian
Should smash their sinning and trash it
Burn it to ashes 'til it passes
(ooh)
Mad assistance His Majesty gives us
To tackle the sin and in His passion
He took on the lashes
(ooh)
Mad persistence He passed and was risen
The Spirit mapping His wisdom
Blusting us with Passages
Christ in all my rapping
Many don't know what I'm spittin'
Like my mic was on inactive
So the listening to Pippen
33 when He went Diesel on that cross
And was risen
Hit that death up with that eagle
Left it lying lie a Griffon
This ain't fiction this is proven
No novel this is different
The survival is to grovel
When you wildin' and you sinning
A righteous man falls down But he gets back up
Sins like Heroin 'til it gets smacked up

You want to battle with a God? Try it!
And I aint talking what 5 percentors be piping
I'm talking 'bout the God
Who spoke words and made flames
His bars hot yo this ain't a game
No lie everybody gon' die
My grandma out here 95
Feeling like she's barely been alive
But in Christ you can live forever just decide
The choice is yours stay slain or
Never Die
"Gallows"
by Dustin Kensrue
Lyrics:

You work like every nail sunk
Every floorboard laid
Is another deed erased
Another debt that's paid
Like every story you've erected's gonna raise you up
So you keep slaving but it never seems to be enough

And now you're scared that it's all gonna crash to the ground
So you tied a knot and started climbing your way down
When you find that you've come to the end of your rope
Take a look and see where you were putting all your hope

Cause you built these gallows you've been hanging from
You've been holding to a noose
So just let go, just let go
You built these gallows you've been hanging from
And you got nothing to lose
So just let go, just let go

I love the wood's already rotting
Though you made it clean
You've hated every short cut
Concealed its crooked seam
But every flaw will be revealed
Each imperfection shown
Oh, I can hear the wind howl and the timber groan
"Young Diaries"
by Ilia
Lyrics:

Here, Here are the pages of diaries being torn out
And these, these are the silent memories of mine
Like blood being poured out
I watched you, I was behind you
As You bred me, you fed me, you led me
But just as soon I'm in a family that's broken apart
By your adulterous heart

Oh God, so carelessly I have been drawn
From your arms
Carry me to your graceful place
That vengeance just can't replace

These mirrors reveal nothing but regret
Such remindful regret
I can't help but to write these young diaries
So hard to forget

I look back
I see your hand lack mine
But I can remember just fine that
Your lips were poisoned
Your arms false refuge
Your heart, a deceitful deluge

Oh God, so carelessly I have been drawn
From your arms
Carry me to your graceful place
That vengeance just can't replace

I'm reaching out
I can't do this anymore
I don't remember who I used to be
All I see is rage
The blood of my enemies of their face
Humiliation engaged
Everything in me that I hate, regurgitates
You were just a face
A pitiful soul that once had a dream
Tell me again because I can't, and I don't believe
A God that loves me?! I can't even love myself

I release you from my wrath
(You and I are forgiven)
As I release me from my past
He's now breaking the grip of my heart
(You and I are forgiven)
With blood so innocently shed for my part
(This is all, this is where this all ends)
"Fire To The Night"
by Rapture Ruckus
Lyrics:

Coming soon...
"Yours Again"
by Red
Lyrics:

I can almost feel you breathing
Like a whisper in my ear
I remember how you lost me
Or how I lost you
I stare into the blackness
It's staring back at me
Why did I try to live without you
I want you, I need you

Open up my eyes
I need your light again
Burning me inside
I need your love again
I can feel our hearts collide
I can feel our hearts ignite
Open up my eyes
I'm yours again

Will I wake up from this moment
Will I see you slip away
Or is this a new beginning
Of beauty and rage
Where did I lose my passion
When did I start to fade
Without you my world is darkness
I won't let go again

I'm yours again, I'm yours again
I'm never letting go, I'm never letting go, I'm never letting go
I'm yours again, I'm yours again, I'm yours again

"Aftermath"
by Fever Fever
Lyrics:

I build a road of darkness with my two bare hands
To get a little bit closer
I build a ship in the sky with my eyes on the sand
To feel a little bit higher

But in the aftermath
Of your reckless love
I feel more alive
Then I ever was
Before my ruins fell
I felt damned to hell
And now my spirit flows on loving sails

I sowed my cloths from the earth
To feel a little less shameful
I took enough from the rock and I cut his throat
To feel a little more able

I see clouds drift away
And the sun on my face takes the weight off my shoulders
I see stones come crashing down to the earth
And my struggle is over
"The Last Stand"
by I Am Spartacus
Lyrics:

We never wanted a riot
We only want an awakening
The media lies to deny it
but this republic is still worth saving. Freedom is born for the first time
out of the ashes of tyranny
With faith in the son of the most high, this republic is still worth saving

Destiny is calling
All we know is falling
Freedom hangs by a thread
Bound together we're not finished yet
There's a fire burning
Hearts of men are turning
Look to the Holy One
Freedom isn't dead, it's just begun

Wake up your friends and your neighbors. We fell asleep and it's plain to see
We turned our hearts from the savior
But this republic is still worth saving. Come on and feel the revival
Watch as the blind begin to see. God is alive and he's able
This republic is still worth saving
This is the last stand on earth. They look to us. We look to Jesus
This is the last stand on earth. They look to us. We look to Jesus
"99% Soul"
by Matty Mullins
Lyrics:

One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
I want to look like you, talk like you, know you more
One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
Make me more like you, come on and make me

I remember a time when I never thought that I'd believe
A prisoner to myself like everyone else
Thinking life was about me, but then I figured it out

One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
I want to look like you, talk like you, know you more
One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
Make me more like you, come on and make me whole

Every day is a new chance to be the man you see in me
So I'll live life one mistake at a time
And trust that grace will guide my feet
I'll never look back knowing that everywhere I go you'll be
I see the truth of your love shining bright through every part of me
So I just want to be

One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
I want to look like you, talk like you, know you more
One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
Make me more like you, come on and make me whole

I'm standing on solid ground cause I know
I'm one percent body, ninety-nine percent soul

Now I am not my own, I was bought with blood
Once was lost but now I know
I've been found by love, your love

One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
I want to look like you, talk like you, know you more
One percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
Make me more like you, come on and make me whole

I'm standing on solid ground cause I know
I'm one percent body, ninety-nine percent soul
"Lost Cause"
by Random Hero
Lyrics:

I know the truth it's not hard to deny
But somewhere my heart got lost in the lie
My faith is dying to see like you see

I'm on a oneway ticket to the darkside of me
Will you hear me if I keep screaming

Is there any sign of life that's inside of me
Should I believe I'm a dead man walking
Say a prayer shine your light down over me
Let me see I'm not a lost cause anymore

It's like you love, you love it, everytime that I bleed
I've been reaching out you're the cure that I need
It's time to knock it down, drag it out, cut myself free
"Downtown"
by Revely
Lyrics:

Well I took the back alley last night
Trying to avoid all the city lights
All of the boys and girls
They're going places and they're getting a taste of
What the night holds

Well I hear the pavement crack underneath the street
We are walking around but we are dead asleep
And we're all trying oh we're all dying
To see where the night goes

So wake us up to what we need to be
Run downtown and light up all the streets

We've got a shaking voice
We've got a nervous gut
Cause we are finding out we know nothing of love
So open up our eyes
We are for real be where our lives go

Cause I don't want the sun to set from the sky
Lest I can stand and say I gave up my whole life
For something deeper oh and something richer
Than where the night goes

We don't wanna be asleep
we wanna wake up
We're shouting from the city streets
Oh how we need you so much

"Runners"
by Lecrae
Lyrics:

Uh, I can't lie, I admire beauty like the next man
I still remember when I used to get my check cashed
Get my hair cut, I hit the streets with my head gassed
Lookin' out for little mommas with a fat faaassssst
That's what my auntie used to tell me
Girl in my rear view tryna tail me
Cause she knew wasn't nothing you could tell me
Always on a trail of another female
Well, well they say my papa was a player
So my dishonesty is honest in me baby
Somehow in college greek letters made me cuter
All the time on line I still couldn't compute it
Uh, I pledge girls then it's on to the next girl
My next girl eventually be my ex girl
But its' funny how it all unfolds
I done finally found a woman I ain't never letting go, whoa

Ooh she looking bad (Don't do it)
I wonder if she got a man (Don't do it)
I don't see no wedding band (Don't do it)
I promise you don't wanna go through it (Look, take it from me)
You don't want no problems (You don't want no problems)
You don't want no problems (You don't want no problems)
You don't want no problems G
Find yourself in the obituary column sheet

It ain't nothing like a good woman
If you got you one of those, be good to 'em
Keep it one hundred, love everybody want it
But the lies and the lust keep lying next to us, but
I got past, and now I'm known to pass it
Up from my passion and I ain't here blastin'
Born a sinner just like any man standing
Couldn't keep the standard so God sent a stand-in
If you creepin' when you feel desire creep in
I know another way to win that don't involve cheating
Don't involve another heart broken into pieces
When a girl call you tell you she saw you on Peachtree
Meet pretty underscore nice features
Had a couple drinks and had yourself a little piece and
Now you feel like the man in the streets pull up to the crib
I see your pants in the street, man
"It Was You"
by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Lyrics:

I relate what is to come
To having bullets but no gun
This song is not for everyone
And I've failed once before
Yes, I've failed twice before
But someone caught my fall

It was you, all along
It was you, all along
Every single time
I needed someone by my side
It was you, all along

Things aren't always as they seem
But I have nothing up my sleeves
Maybe that's why I will succeed
'Cause I failed once before
Yes I've failed twice before
But someone caught my fall
"Erased"
by Relentless Flood
Lyrics:

Oh God I've done it again, I've fallen on my face
I'm drowning in this shame, my mind will not erase
So now I lift up my eyes to the One who is "I Am"
For by His blood I'm justified

My life, my time, is not about me at all
My sins, they're gone, as far as the east is from the west
It's not about what I've done, because of who you are
My debt has been erased

Why have I struggled so long, in a war with my own mind
Oh God please take it away, help me cut the ties that bind
I'm done with living in this self-inflicted shame
Because the waters of Your mercy, they are deep enough for me – yeah

Praise the One! He took my place!
He will reign forevermore!
"Here's Our Cry"
by We Are Vessel
Lyrics:

These lies, it tells, this world is leading itself
To fear, to doubt, what life is all about What life is all about

We are a nation rising, can you hear our battle cry?
We are lifting up our arms, we're taking freedom back
With You leading the way, we cannot fall into our past mistakes
Here's our cry!

Whoa Oh, Whoa oh
We want our liberty
Whoa Oh, Whoa Oh
We want our nation free

There's hurting and fighting, but we're too busy trying
To fill our lives, to hide the brokenness inside
The brokenness inside!

"Out Of The Fire"
by Audio Adrenaline
Lyrics:

I hear the lies of the enemy
Draw me into captivity
I know this is not how it's meant to be
I gotta break free

I want the world to know
There is an antidote
A cure for this disease
You are the remedy

Out of the fire
Pull me into the river
Out of the fire
Only you can deliver me
From myself
My soul is singing

Out of the fire
Pull me under the water
Into the life only your love can offer me
My God my soul, is singing

There is an absolute
A healing for these wounds
A love that's guaranteed
You are the remedy

You take my sin
I breathe you in
"Love Changed Everything"
by Bread Of Stone
Lyrics:

Sometimes I see myself in the eyes of a vulture
Sometimes I hear my own voice like a howl
Cause I'll fight, crawl, Do what I can to make it on my own
I'm left out cold and alone, So cold and alone

Pull me from this sadness
Save me from this madness

Take me from the darkness
I wanna see the sunrise

I'm wandering out in the night still looking for a way back home
I got trapped by the lies I was told and the teeth sunk down to the bone
Now I'm chained down I wanna be free from the life I've always known
I've tried this so many times But I can't break free on my own

Don't know what I'm fighting for
Tell me what I have to gain
I wanna lose myself in Your grace
Show me how I need You now
I'm never gonna be the same
Your love changed everything
"Mental"
by KJ-52
Lyrics:

They say we crazy but we dont care
They say we crazy but we dont care

I be goin mental
I be goin mental
You, he, they be
We be goin mental

KJ:
I'm almost 4-0 but feeling like I'm half of that
Ya blind to the truth, you like some old dudes with cataracts
My God will crack the roof and boom the sky like it's rat-a-tat
So I grab the track ride the rap like the saddle back

Searching for directions
Like some tags on a Apple map
Never learned my lesson
What I had I tried to grab it back
The I start repenting then heaven
Became my habitat
And now we kind of tight
Like He-Man and Battle Cat

Tell me what you laughing at
Y'all just need to go with me
Y'all just need to face the fact
That you need to roll with me

I get so amazed that He died and He rose
And He came as the Lion King
But you treat Him like Hello Kitty

Hello Diddy. Sup! Hello J. Yo!
What's Up Fiddy? Ok. What's up Wayne? What up?
You know My King the One who runs down the whole thing
In case you never understand here's why we so cray

Tedashii:
I be going mental (duh)
That's what we fix'n to go now
Even if it hurt I got to get it (ok)
It's about to go down (let's go)
He chose to get me He rolling with me
He could've killed me no smokin' pistol
Alive now on fire now
Can't be tied down it's worldwide

All around the country they losin' it
Yeah get used to it
Off is how I used to live but now it's only through the switch
Unashamed, it's not a game, man we passionate
It's about to get crazy. baby make sure you fasten it

Crazy that's what they say
Mental that's what they think
If you been through what I been through
Then you might just go insane

They say we crazy but we don't care
Yeah, I was crazy before I got here

KJ:
From the back to the front
It's packing a pump that's smacking and racking them up
I rap and attack, the stuff they happen to love
We snatchin' 'em up
They acting the punk
They braggin' it up and they laugh and they cracking 'em up
The claim they backing it up
But all I got is love

He came in the flesh, He came and He left
When he rose to the sky and above
He came with a death He came and He went
For those recognized in the Blood

He came and He bled, I claim what he said
'Cause all I have is the One
That came and He lived and I claim
What He did so I rap and brag on the Son like -
"Chain Reaction"
by Love Like Gravity
Lyrics:

Wake up, our city's falling
It's not impossible to save
We've failed our one devotion
Now, flip the circuit like a renegade

We sleep while our beds are burning
Tucked in so warm and tight
But we'll all wake up beggars
Blind eyed to the fire fly

The danger creeps in when we close our eyes
While we sleep so paralyzed
This status quo is madness

Just imagine
A chain reaction
Come on, ignite the passion
Chain reaction
A chain reaction

We weigh our strength in numbers
We hang them on our wall
Stacked up like mindless dominos
Line 'em up now and watch 'em fall
No more...the hum drum holy
We'll choke on every breath
Like a sweet drink for the masses
Padded seats and the smell of death
"Depraved"
by The Overseer
Lyrics:

You could take me home
And never leave me alone
Break this heart of stone
Then I could dance

Broken, we are all the same
Vices locked inside our frames
Desperate and depraved is all we are

Everyone's loved, but nobody's lovely
Everyone's low, but nobody's lowly
Everyone blames but nobody's blameless
Everyone shames but nobody's shameless

Everyone's used but nobody's useless

"Sirens"
by Attalus
Lyrics:

Here come the sirens.
Charming and sweet.
Saying "I got I got I got everything you need."
Hungry as lions.
Primed for the feast.
Beauty at times is just a side of the beast.
Beauty at times is just a lie.

Voices of culture.
Charming and sweet.
Saying "I got I got I got something good to eat."
Gather as vultures.
Ready to feed.
And before you know you're being swallowed up by greed.
Before you know you're being swallowed.

Don't get their song stuck in your head.
Don't let them lure you into bed.
Don't heed the song of the sirens or you're gonna wind up dead.
They're just devils in disguise.
Hell's sick mirage of paradise.
Don't lift your eyes to the sirens
One look could take your life.

Can you feel them? breathing down upon your neck.
Their shadows fall upon the deck.
Like fantasies that haven't yet turned into nightmares.
I know their way seems so sublime.
I know their rivers run with wine.
But in the end you're gonna find there is no light there.
Oh they're breathing down upon your neck.
Their shadows fall upon the deck.
Like fantasies that haven't yet turned into nightmares.
I know their way seems so sublime.
I know their poison tastes like wine.
But in the end you're gonna find it's all a lie.

Be not betrayed by their cries
Lest you be dragged to the depths.
Don't let them feed you a lie.
Don't let them feed on your flesh.

Here come the sirens.
Charming and sweet.
Saying "I got I got I got everything you need."
"Angels & Demons"
by Disciple
Lyrics:

I was off the beaten path I thought that I was free at last
Living in the shadows
Paranoid and breathing fast, knees collapse
So get away its too late to save me
Day and night I run and hide
Wishing you would forget me in the shadows
You denied my suicide, I came alive
And now I know

(Not one) Nothing can tear us apart
Nothing can separate me
Nothing can break us apart
Nothing can separate
No angel, no demon, no danger, no enemy
(Not one) Nothing can break us apart
Theres not one thing that can separate me

I was just a runaway, full of pain in love with hate
Looking for a reason
I could only speculate to my fate
Until the day that you came to save me
From each trap every attack
I had life but you gave it a reason
Perfect love has filled me up, I am alive
And now I know

Nothing can separate!
"What Matters"
by Embers In Ashes
Lyrics:

What Matters
We will time to move slowly as the moments pass
We dream of days weve lost, while clinging to our past
If we all could wake up and see life as it is

A passing cloud of smoke a momentary breath
Show me what it is that matters
Focus every breath I take
Take my life broken and tattered
Remake me for Your sake
Mistakes from my past haunt me everyday

I think of all I've done
How can I be saved
Breath on me new life
I know theres more than this
Wake me up inside

Show me how to live
Reshape my life and make me new
Just make my minds focus You
Take every part of who I am
Give me direction help me stand
"Feel Alive"
by New Hope Christian College
Lyrics:

In this moment I can see your dawn about to break
The light is coming with an end to all my past mistakes
I can feel my heart, it's waking up from hibernation state

My lungs are full, my lungs are full

You make me feel alive

My heart is beating out my chest, I can't express this clearly
My eyes are open, I can see you coming, drawing near me
Your light surrounds me like the stars of every galaxy

You got me singing about the time
That I had fallen down, but you picked me up
The time that I had broken down, but you built me up
The time that I had hit the ground, but you pulled me up
High above it all
"Dance On My Grave"
by Riverside Confession
Lyrics:

Come on people dance on my grave
Don't you know that death has lost it's sting
Come on people dance on my grave
Dont you know that I'm in a better place

Some take it too hard

I tip my hat to the undertaker man
This is what he said to me
Son you don't have to be afraid if you know where you will be
I tip my hat to the undertaker man
This is what he said to me
Son do you know when you die where your soul is gonna be
That's what the undertake said

Come on people dance on my grave
Dont you know that I'm in a better place
Come on people put the flowers down
No that ain't nothing but a bit of hollow ground

Some take it too hard
Six feet of dirt can't hold me down

No man has to face eternity alone
Or walk blindly into the great unkown
The body is a shell the soul is free
The body is a shell God set me free

"Hope Is Alive"
by Abandon
Lyrics:

You sit there in the waiting room
Anxious for the news
You've been to everyone you could
But they're playing the same tune

In the darkness there's a light
So rest your weary eyes
And lift your head up high

Your hope is alive
Your hope is alive
I see it in your eyes
Your hope is alive

This prison that you've made
You got the feeling that you can't escape
There's a fire that can't be contained
That can burn all your chains away

When the storm is raging there's a peace
A voice that calms the seas
A reason to believe

Your hope is alive
Your hope is alive
I see it in your eyes
Your hope is alive

When everything is crashing down
And your fortress crumbles to the ground
And your strength is failing now
In the darkness there's a light
So rest your weary eyes
And lift your head up high

Your hope is alive
Your hope is alive
I see it in your eyes
Your hope is alive
"All Is Lost"
by Empire 21
Lyrics:

Tell me that all is a twist of fate
Tell me that all is a fairy tale
Is it all coincidence

Tell me just how did we come this far
Tell me just how did we raise the bar so high
Oh why?
Why are we here?

Is there anybody out there?
Anyone in space and time
Who is the master of the grand design

All is lost
All is done
Without hope we carry on
We're trying to hide the truth, the wisdom
All alone

I know it's all been a matter of
Use and abuse in the name of God
But is it all coincidence?

I know the story just like you do
No one can prove it so no one can really tell
Just true coincidence?
"Run Wild" (feat. Andy Mineo)
by For King And Country
Lyrics:

Are the walls to lock you in or to keep others away
And if the doors were to be opened would you leave or would you stay
The comfort of your misery you cherish dearly, you cherish dearly
And you haven't started dreaming 'cause you're still fast asleep, you're fast asleep

But don't you want to
Run wild, live free
Love strong, you and me

You're a lion full of power who forgot how to roar
You're an eagle full of beauty but you can't seem to soar
Will you return to the garden where you were first made whole
Will you turn to the one who can liberate your soul

Don't you want to
Run wild, live free
Love strong, you and me
Run wild, live free
Love strong

To every soul locked in a cage
In the prison of your past mistakes
No, there's no time left to waste
Yeah, you can make your great escape
We're made to run wild, run wild, run wild
We're made to run wild, run wild, run wild

Run forest, all depends what direction
Some people run from fear, some from their own reflection
Some people run their mouth, some people run their house
Ruling with the heart of a tyrant
Some people run their block, bust shots with a 4-4-5 and
That's the environment, how we were raised
Living like lions but trapped in a cage
Back to imago dei with the blood of a king and the heart of a slave
Don't you wanna run

And if your soul's locked in a cage
You can make your great escape
We're made to run wild, live free
Love strong, you and me
"Shallow" Mashup (Andy Mineo / Crowder)
by MM4H
Lyrics:

Mineo:
Early Christmas morning at the table with my momma
Steam's coming off the coffee, we talking about the Father
These are the conversations I cherish and I hold on to
She asked me, "Is there a girl in your life that you're fond of?"
Well, not yet, feels like I'm looking for the Lochness.
I ain't even really got a prospect
I don't think I found what I want yet.
But let me be blunt, no pothead,
I'm going through a process to stop seeing women as objects
'Cause the meaning of marriage is not sex.
It's so much more, this ain't no beauty contest
When you play that game then somebody's always got next.
If charm is deceiving and beauty's vain, then I bet
The standards that we judge most people with are nonsense.
I put too much emphasis on my preferences,
Dang, I'm feeling shallow just addressing this
'Cause God loves me despite of how much a mess I am
And I'm writing off shawties whose bodies is less impressive like, dang.

I'm caught up in this game again
She's asking if we're more than friends
Why is this happening?
I don't know if she the one,
But I don't wanna lose her love.
I'm caught up in this game again,
She's asking if we're more than friends
Why is this happening?
I don't know if she the one,
But I don't wanna lose her love.

Swoope:
Cooling back in '01, high school mac was so fun,
Making chicks my baby, then on to the next one, Jay-Z.
'01 turned to '04, late night games at your dorm,
Let's take a walk, your girls hating,
We're just flirting, we ain't dating.
'04 turned to '06, and you're so sick,
Asking me, "Is that your chick?"
And I'm like, "Yes, finna put her in a white dress".
And you cry, I loved you, I ain't mean it, but I said it,
Now I'm married with a trail of broken hearts and I regret it, dang.
Should've treated you like you was God's daughter,
'Cause you was, but I got caught up, now I got Karma.
Comma, 2012 and now I got daughters,
And I'd kill the dude that ever do them like I did you.
Long list of names, that's too long to mention,
But I'm the one He cleansed in, I did my dirt
And then some, pain was never intention,
I pray for your forgiveness,
Thank God He saved me from my sin but not the consequences, dang.

Mineo:
There are so many things that I don't understand
Like why am I so lost if I have a captain.
I'm tossed back and forth by deceitful winds,
And if it all falls, look within.
I've been breaking hearts way too long
I did this from the start, now I'm all alone.
So focus on the heart if you want a home
I can't settle for that cardboard box no more.

Crowder:
If you are lost and wandering
Come stumbling in like a prodigal child
See the walls start crumbling
Let the gates of glory open wide

If youre lost and wrecked gain
Come stumbling in like a prodigal child
See the walls start crumbling
Let the gates of glory open wide
Let the gates of glory open wide

And all the boys said
All I really know is I don't know what I want
Caught up in this game again
And all the boys said

"Wake Us Up"
by Aaron Gillespie
Lyrics:

We may feel all alone
We may feel like giving up
But you said "I have power over death"
And you are not dead yet
No, you are not dead yet

Wake us up, Holy One
Hallelujah
We are your daughters and sons

Oh you can meet God
Said the father to us
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
We are Yours!

We may say that we can't change
We may try to run away
But you said "I have power over death"
And you are not dead yet
So we cry out

So we ask you to change us
And awake us
And fill our hearts with grace
with our hands raised

We surrender
For meaning, for nothing
Lord change us by your grace
By your grace, yeah!
"Safety (feat. Stephen Christian)"
by Fireflight
Lyrics:

All alone, alone you float
Can anybody see you
You're a ghost
Do they know the pain you hide
Do they know the pain you hide
Cry for help, reaching out
Can anybody hear you when you shout
Are you hidden from their eyes
Are you hidden from their eyes
I see you

In the light, in the dark
I will be your bleeding heart
Cause when you need me
I'll be your safety
I'll be your safety
Like a fire, running wild
Can't contain what's deep inside
Ready to break free
I'll be your safety
I'll be your safety

House of cards, you fell apart
Feels like you were falling from the start
And now the walls are caving in
Now the walls are caving in
Take a breath, take my hand
It doesn't really matter where we land
I'll be there to help you stand
I'll be there to help you stand
I'll hold you

Your feet are gonna hit the ground
Hope is all you need right now
I'll be there, I'll be there, I'll be there

Coming soon...
"Mercy"
by Ravenhill
Lyrics:

This life is hard and I need you Lord
So won't you take my hand
And I may fall, I may stumble
Oh Lord I'm just a man

And I remember every word that he said
Stand tall you're not alone
I can bear the burdens of the seed I have sown
I built a fire that leaves me cold
And I can bear the burden of the seeds I have sown

I have a heart but it needs love Lord
and you're the only way
We will fight but Lord we know we're strong
And all my enemies just seem to crumble

I got a mansion
Built by the good Lord
And He's come to carry me home
"My Creator"
by Wild Earth
Lyrics:

Made for more than this
Made to swim beneath the surface
You are more than this
As your spirit touches His

What have you made?
What have you made?
What have...

My Creator, my Creator
Has made new life in me!

With every sovereign chance
It was me that you discovered
Oh You illuminate
A brilliance like no other

What have you made?
What have you made?
What have...

My Creator, my Creator
Has made new life in me!

My Creator, my Creator
Your love inspires me

"Hold Your Breath"
by Children 18:3
Lyrics:

This appears to be a crossroads
Swimming both the same way
But I don't like the way those clouds are starting to form
It may be time to step away
This waterfall is close and steep

Hold your breath
We're going under
Hold your breathe
It's lightning, its thunder
Hold your courage now
I can feel the shaking

I don't mean to be a downer
The waterfall rushing by
But I can't swim and I don't even float anymore
With all this rain I'm paralyzed

And it doesn't take long to realize
If you're worried and you can't sleep
If you'd like to take my hand
We can make it to the morning
We can get this ship to land
And when everything around you
Seems to slip into the deep

It may be time
It may be time
"Destruction Of Kings"
by Devin Williams
Lyrics:

You were perfect
Full of wisdom and light
You were oh so beautiful...

Deception was your key
With violence in your eyes
You thought that you cold be the one

Lay broken on the floor
Brought down to your knees
Corrupted to the core
The destruction of kings

You were blameless
From the day that you were born
You were clothed in diamonds and jewels
You were vanquished finally caught up in your lies
You thought that you cold be the Most High

Your ego trip is over
Your arrogance will take you down
"Diamonds In The Dark"
by We Are Leo
Lyrics:

Feels like a million nights that I spent alone
Looking for the Love I'd never know
But then you came into my life
Like fireworks on the 4th of july
And with one touch made my heart ignite
And come alive

Like a million stars lighting up the night
Our hearts will burn so bright
We found hope in the Blackness
Beauty from ashes
We will rise & light up the night and shine like Diamonds
Diamonds in the Dark
We are Diamonds, Diamonds in the Dark

I feel a million hearts that beat as one
I hear a million saints sing a brand new song
Lost inside this beautiful life
Like the stars we'll shine forever bright
Just one touch made our hearts ignite and come alive

We are Diamonds, Diamonds
We Are Diamonds in the Dark

"Stranger"
by Hearts Like Lions
Lyrics:

I never was one who was fond of change
But this dust fills my lungs
As everyone else breathes their share
As they pass me by, pass me by
Don't know if I can keep these hopes up high for long

I'll run away from this place where
I'm not such a stranger in my own skin
To a place I can call home cause
Feels like I'm stuck on the outside just staring in

You always wanted to be around me
But I swore that it would never be this hard
Never be this hard to be myself, so

And I've changed I know this
And only thoughts of you are what have taken me home
I just want you to notice, I just want to be myself
But it's too late

Cause we're never strangers in our skin
We'll shout it out till the very end
We're far away from that place
No turning back for anything
"In Too Deep"
by Seventh Day Slumber
Lyrics:

I guess the wounds run so deep
I cant see how they've infected me
Controlling me
I've wasted away
recalling pain from yesterday
It's killing me

And I'm reaching out

Can't save myself
I'm in too deep
As waves crash down
It's getting harder to breathe
I'm reaching out
God save me now
I'm in too deep

Make these memories fade
Cause I can't live like this for one more day
It's too much to take
My innocence lost
Ripped away no matter what the cost
You took it all

I'm fading away
I'm in too deep
I can't see through the haze as darkness closes in
Somebody wake me up
"Anthem"
by Silversyde
Lyrics:

It's time to rise up from the ashes, tonight
It's time to hold our heads up high and fight

Take one step closer to the edge
I see the fear that's in your eyes
Take one step closer to the edge
Let's spread our wings it's time to fly

It's time to make a little noise, tonight
It's time to stand and raise our voice
And be heard tonight

You have been chosen for this time
You have a light that needs to shine
(Now put your hand up to the sky)
This is our fight this is our life
"Breathe Again" (feat. Matty Mullins)
by Spoken
Lyrics:

Are you broken
A million pieces inside
Your heart wants to surrender
Your mind is asking why?

Are you hopeless
Do you believe you're too far gone?
You fight off the surrender
And so you carry on

I know inside you're falling apart
I know exactly where you are
I see the hope
The light in your eyes

You've come too far to feel this way
So leave the pieces in the grave
Starting over again
So you can breathe again

I was broken
I felt the pain so deep inside
Never wanted to remember
So I kept it out of sight

I am hopeless
I'm nothing more than just a man
The fire burns within me
The fire makes me who I am

The war will come
The shadows will fall
It rages on
It burns in us all

The war will come
The shadows will fade
Look past the embers
And into the flame

Verse of the Day

July 7, 2015
And when you look up into the sky and see the sun, moon, and stars - all the forces of heaven - don't be seduced into worshiping them. The LORD your God gave them to all the peoples of the earth.
Deuteronomy 4:19
